ALL-STEINWAY SCHOOL INITIATIVE
The Northern Arizona University School of Music is thrilled to announce the public launch of its All-Steinway School Initiative!
Pianos occupy a central place in all programs of music study and many facets of music performance. Our exceptionally talented NAU students deserve access to the finest instruments. That’s why we set our sights on Steinway pianos, the benchmark of excellent craftsmanship for more than 150 years.
The NAU School of Music’s piano inventory currently includes 89 pianos of various brands, age, and quality. This Initiative strives to place 61 new pianos in classrooms, practice rooms, and faculty offices and studios. The dollar value of our piano inventory approaches $2.5 million—we are already 54% toward the goal of becoming an All-Steinway School.
